Orin Swift’s Blindfold Now Available in IL

blindfold_whiteCreated to provide the perfect white wine companion to The Prisoner, Blindfold is bold and intriguing. In establishing our own spin on a white blend, winemaker Jen Beloz and her team sought out interesting Rhone and aromatic varietals that would nicely compliment a classic Chardonnay base. Through partnering with growers who are dedicated to cultivating alternative varietals in their outstanding vineyards throughout California, the result is a wine that is complex and delicious.

Aromatic and inviting, the wine opens up with subtle notes of mandarin and meyer lemon zest, complimented on the palette with delightful flavors of Anjou pear, roasted marshmellow, spiced apple tart and a hint of minerality. The finish is rich and creamy with bright, balanced acidity.

35% Chardonnay, 60% Rhone whites (Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc), 5% Aromatic (Semillion and Riesling).

Aged in 25% New oak (French and Hungarian), 60% Neutral oak, and 15% stainless steel for 10 months.
